How to apply mineral makeup

With mineral make-up, a little goes a long way.
Because the pigments in most mineral cosmetics are pure and undiluted, they give superior coverage for less (and better value for money to boot!). You only need a small amount for decent, natural coverage, so don't go overboard! 

Use the right tools. 
Smooth, even application is paramount. You need to make sure you get just the right amount of powder on your brush and no more! Use a densely-packed brush and dip it well into your powder to get it into the bristles. Tap off the excess, swirl and buff. Remember to build your colour up gradually rather than caking it on in one go.
